Love the interviews! Based on what I have read and what Robert Atkins and Andy Schmidt have said in your interviews...G.I. Joe seems to be in good hands with IDW. I do have a guestion about the Roadblock/Heavy Duty topic. Schimidt said it was a copyright thing. But if I'm not mistaken, isn't the G.I. Joe figure in the Combat Heroes series by Hasbro named Roadblock? I just don't understand how Hasbro could hold on to the trademark of Roadblock and carelessly let the copyright slip away. Oh, well...

That's a question we also have still. We had Roadblock figures from 2002 to the present, but can't use the name in the comic? I really think it may have something to do with Heavy Duty being in the movie, but that is just me :D
